The Motorists Concours this weekend: Display to include $100m worth of cars – win a double pass!

The inaugural Motorists Concours d’Elegance event is set to showcase more than $100m worth of cars among the sculpture garden of Point Leo Estate this weekend 1-3 April

There aren’t too many places in the world, let alone in Australia, where you can see a pair of classic Mercedes-Benz 300SL (roadster and Gullwing) together at the same time. Let alone a McLaren F1, one of the most iconic and collectable cars on the planet!

The high-profile event will feature almost 80 cars among the stunning artwork in the Point Leo Estate sculpture garden, with guests invited to critique and vote for cars within their category, and for outright ‘best in show’ honours.

Cars scheduled for display include:

1923 Rolls Royce Ghost, Brougham De Ville
(originally owned by the Arnotts Biscuit Family)
1925 Bentley “100 MPH” Supersport
(one of 17 produced, and the only Australian-delivered car)
2020 McLaren Speedtail
(the only one in the country)
1994 McLaren F1
(possibly the single most valuable car in Australia)
1973 Ferrari Daytona Comp Coupe
(Australian-delivered converted to competition specification)
1972 Ex-Scuderia Brescia Corse Lola T290
(competed at the Targa Florio)
1923 T23 Bugatti Brescia 1977 Lamborghini Countach P400 Periscopico
(one of the earliest examples of the model in Australia)
1952 Lancia Aurelia B20 Coupe
(an early example of the road car favoured by racing drivers in the ’50s)
2022 Pagani Huayra Coupe
(approx $5.5m on the road)

The Drive team will be there to cover the event, and we have 2x general admission double passes available (each valued at $500) to give away to a couple of lucky readers.

To enter, let us know in the comments below what car you would love t
o see on display – and guided by some of the entries already, the sky is the limit here!

We’ll choose the winners on Thursday 31 March, and if you’re successful we will see you in your VIP attire at some point over the weekend.
